SFGAm 1 Thing

Talk about anything that has to do with the amusement park industry here.
Postby ChicagoCoasters on March 27th, 2018, 5:38 pm
Here's the point of the game. There are a bunch of categories, you have to pick one thing in each category to add or improve on at Six Flags Great America. The categories are roller coaster, thrill ride, family ride, kid's ride, water ride, waterslide, food, merchandise, shows, festival, Fright Fest, something the park should bring back, appearance, and something that doesn't have a category. Here is an example which happens to be my answers.

Roller Coaster: Mack Rides Launched Mega Coaster
Thrill Ride: Funtime Starflyer
Family Ride: Ferris Wheel
Kid's Ride: Zamperla Speedway
Water Ride: Intamin Mega Splash
Waterslide: Proslide Water Coaster
Food: Macaroni and Cheese Bar
Merchandise: Calendars with Photos of the Rides and Coasters
Shows: Stunt Show
Festival: Holiday In The Park
Fright Fest: Add More Scareactors
Bring Back: V2's Holding Brake
Appearance: More Flowers and Trees
No-Category: Hotel
I am interested to hear your opinions.
1.) Goliath 2.) Mystic Timbers 3.) Diamondback 4.) Raging Bull 5.) Hades 360
Ragin Cajun and Iron Wolf went from Six Flags Great America to Six Flags America. I guess they weren't GREAT anymore.

I don't understand the obsession with RMC T-Rex, based on what we've seen they look like capacity nightmares. I'd be down for it if they made a variant with a slightly wider track with 2 seat rows. Also, why bring back the classical music complaint again? The park flip-flopped on this for a while and the complaints would start within a week of them switching the music.

Don't get me wrong, I hate the music they play as well but we can't all start fires and pull out pitchforks every time the park decides to change it.

The T-Rex is the larger variant. You're thinking of the Raptor. :P

^^ Is there a reason you have to be a critic on everything that you slightly disagree with? Just post your list and move on.
